Antique Gold and Enamel American Flag Locket Brooch
The Enamelled Flag has 42 Stars, each one representing a State and I am told that this number of States dates the Brooch to 1889. The Locket back opens to reveal 2 unglazed photo compartments and the Gold is unmarked and tests for 14k, the piece is in good condition and with the Enamel intact. I found the Flag in an English county antique fair so I assume that it was brought back to the UK by a family in the late 19th century and I hope it will make its return journey to the USA soon. A historical patriotic jewel.
